      Search engine problem     

There is a problem when searching with TFSE and using the keyword NBS (the rest of the search options are set to standard values). The result of the search will display the last 2000 threads on the hive with an " " at the end.

      Not a bug, its a feature.     

We thought you might want to search for various html formating in the post titles.

      Search for "NBS NOT nbsp" instead     

Search for "NBS NOT nbsp" instead and the posts containing the HTML character " " won't show up.

      aren't you going to miss posts     

Won't those searching for references to N-bromosuccinimide run the risk of missing relevant posts which also contain a non-breaking space if they use the exclusion logic suggested?

      You could search seperately for threads ...     

The search pages says the not is identical to andnot. You could search seperately for threads containing both or you could add that to the previously suggested algorythm.

      you'll end up with 2000+     

You can't search for threads containing NBS and NBSP because all threads containing NBSP contain NBS by default.

The following seems to pick up those posts that contain NBS and a non-breaking space:

" NBS " (spaces before and after the NBS)

It also picks up one or two posts that it shouldn't, but not very many.

Are you responding to me Lilienthal? I don't understand. The " NBS " search term seems to pick up what is being looked for pretty accurately, but picks up some " "s that are in the Body.

      It looks like all &nbs[]p; in the body are...     

It looks like all   in the body are from old posts from before 07-22-01.

      Just how does one implement the &nbs,...and others     

I'm always mining the Hive for some pearls of wisdom hidden in posts, hence upon reading this thread I want to understand the options this thread has alluded to . Please explain with a simple example on how to use the features you are discussing .Thank you starlight for defining NBS, but what is   and how would this look if I was looking for deoxygenation of phenyalaninol , as it would be typed in hte search inquiry ........ I understand  the space before and after the ", ...........java

      I dont think it is relevant     

Java: I don't think that the features mentioned are necessarily useful for the search that you refer to. If I was looking for the information you mention I would just search for:

phenylalaninol OR 3-phenyl-2-aminopropanol

And then scan the resulting posts.

The technique with the double quotes enclosing a letter sequence with a leading or trailing space is mainly useful for separating those posts which contain a sequence of letters as part of a word from those that contain the same sequence of letters as a word in its own right. According to the search engine page it is also an "expensive" search for the server, so should only be used where absolutely necessary.

      'Indexed' vs. 'Fulltext'     

Actually phrase searches are only more time consuming in 'Indexed' mode but not in the 'Fulltext' mode which is the current default. smile
